I've made a clean install of Mac OSX Mountain Lion in my 15" Macbook Pro late 2009 laptop. I kept reciving these intermittent lock ups and then the Macbook pro reboots (while thankfully saving whatever it needed to save before it reboots) by itself with a message saying that the macbook pro had a problem and had to restart automatically. Did any of you have the same problem? and if so do you have a solution to fix it?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion, Late 2009, 15" Macbook Pro

    In Finder:


    1.  Press Command-Shift-G.

    2.  Type (or paste) /Library/Logs/PanicReporter

    3.  Click Go.


    You should see some panic log files dated recently.  Copy one of them and paste the log in this thread.

    I am having the same issue with my late 2010 model macbook pro 15 inch. When the computer restarts, the Problem Report for OS X screen comes up with the following in the Details section (third time this has happened in the last 3 hours or so, any help would be great:

    Your problem is probably unrelated to the original poster's problem.  Your problem will probably go away if you disable automatic GPU switching.  However, because your machine appears to be the model described here:




    I would strongly advise you to immediately take it to an Apple store and ask them to check your graphics hardware to make sure it has not failed.  Bring a copy of that article with you when you go.


    See the following thread for lots of other people with the same problem:

    Since I upgraded my early 09 Mac mini to ML its crashed 11 times on me. I keep getting a Kernel trap. It's not a clean install and everything was running perfect before ML. I've also had wifi issues just like many other users. So far ML has been the worst OS update I've experienced... :( Really hoping Apple addresses these issues ASAP.

  • 5. Re: Mac OSX Mountain Lion crashes randomly.
    RedRacer123 Level 1 Level 1 (10 points)

    My early 09 Mac Mini is bricked. After several ML install attempts all I get is restart/panic/restart/panic...


    Apple appears to be completely ignoring these problems which should have TOP priorty. We have DEAD Macs at this time and Apple is completely responsible.

    Have you tried going back to Lion? I think that's what I'll end up doing.

    I have the same issue here. I keep crashing every day, at lease 2 times per day. this really drives me crazy! What's wrong with ML?

    Any idea what my Mac's problem is?


    Installed ML yesterday. Frequently crashes. Astoundingly bad service from Apple.

    Same here. Macbook Pro 2011 - Crashing every 2-3 days. It just freezes. I can only move the mouse, i see the pointer moving but the whole screen is like a picture. If it happens to have iTunes opened i can still hear the sound in the background for a little while before that crashes too.


    On Lion i never had a single issue.

    Looks like a probable graphics driver panic.  Beyond that, I can't say much without decoding the full backtrace.


    If this is happening frequently, I would suggest running the hardware test DVD that came with your machine to make sure you don't have something wrong with the machine itself.


    That said, looking at what I see here, the panic is being triggered by some action coming from a user-space process called "plugin-container".  That's the name of the proceess that Firefox uses to sandbox plug-ins.  So it is likely that Flash or some other plug-in is tickling a bug in NVIDIA's drivers.  It would be helpful if you could provide the URL of the page you were visiting at the time, assuming that you have any way to determine that information, and assuming that the problem is regularly reproducible with a particular site.


    In addition, it would be worth upgrading to the latest version of Flash Player if you have not already done so.  Adobe may have already worked around the bug.  If that doesn't help, try a plug-in blocker extension like ClickToFlash (or one of the many Firefox equivalents) that lets you control when and where Flash content is allowed.

    Your problem is almost certainly completely unrelated.  When a kernel panic occurs, the machine reboots.  If it is configured to not reboot, the machine freezes completely, mouse cursor and all.


    Your problem—an unresponsive system with a moving mouse cursor—is typically caused by either a crash of some critical daemon or by some specific part of the kernel hanging (while the rest remains functional).


    You should check /Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports and ~/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports for any interesting crashes that occur at about the same time as your freezes.

    Thank you for the info. I did check now both folders as i had a crash this morning and there is no file in there.


    Also i enabled SSH a few days ago as i had an ideea. So today when it crashed i connected through SSH (While it was freezed) fom a windows PC and looked with htop, there was no process with high cpu usage or anything that could explaing the freeze. I also killed all programs that i had opened (Skype, Chrome, Mail, Cornerstone) and it still remained frozen.


    Any Ideea where i could look next time this happes? Or what can i do? At least i want to figure it out what is causing this.

    The spin dumps produced by sysdiagnose could be helpful.  Or a stackshot.
